I am using all that stuff with some linux script for photo frame. I was able to get a slide show. But I am stuck at last command which suppose to reboot the device and it will start woking as photo frame, but it is not. Here is the command,

Step-5: Modify the /etc/initab with following lines as shown below.
id:5:initdefault:

x:5:once:/bin/su <username> -l -c “/bin/bash –login -c /usr/bin/startx > /dev/null 2>&1″
The above lines set default init level as 5. In default init level 5, we start X server for your normal user.
Step-6: Reboot to get your Digital Photo Frame ready.

Did you reboot ?
If yes , is there any change in behaviour ? Any error messages ?

yes when I reboot the device it was again working as computer(raspberry pi) not as a photo frame. I am using Dabian Weezy for my Raspberry Pi.
